Axis Cavalry in World War II by Jeffrey T. Fowler
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


While Germany was fielding the most advanced tanks and aircraft in the world, on the vast steppes of the USSR the German Army and Waffen-SS were still sending large units of horsed cavalry into battle -as were their Italian, Hungarian and Rumanian allies and their vassal armies of Cossacks and Kalmyks. This title describes and illustrates in detail this apparent historical anomaly, one of the forgotten chapters of World War II.

Dr. Jeffrey T. Fowler is a retired U.S. Army historian and military police officer who served in Korea and Germany. He is the director of a security-consulting firm in the American Midwest.

Mike Chappell spent 22 years in infantry soldiering, retining in 1974 as RSM of the 1st Bn., The Wessex Regiment (Rifle Volunteers).
